LVMH-owned Champagne house Krug is taking consumers on a journey of taste and sound for its latest pairing event series.
Krug often compliments its tasting events with musical elements to heighten the experience of the attendee, because with music, as with Champagne, no translation is needed for enjoyment.
From the extreme 18th century rococo style of architecture and decoration and the Donald Trump-ish concept of showy mansions with gold-leaf furniture to Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous-style $1,000 lobster omelets (topped with 10 ounces of caviar) and Jacob the Jeweler’s diamond-encrusted bling — excessive displays of luxury have always been considered controversial if not a bit vulgar and déclassé.
Swiss watchmaker Hublot is showcasing ancient Greek artifacts that have not been displayed outside of Greece in 2,000 years. The artifacts are part of a larger museum exhibit celebrating timekeeping of antiquity and Hublot’s involvement with the Antikythera, the oldest known astronomical calculator, which disrupted the conceptual framework developed by horology experts.

With their place in the single currency at least secure for now, Greeks will vote this weekend in the country’s second election in eight months. They will choose a government that can expect no honeymoon at home as the economy sinks, or abroad as European leaders struggle to maintain support for emergency proposals to accept at least 120,000 asylum seekers.
Jet.com may have the lowest prices on the Web, but a lot of people who visit the site still don’t realize it.
That is something CEO Marc Lore acknowledged when asked about confusion among people who hear about Jet.com’s low prices but don’t see them displayed clearly when they visit a Jet.com product page.
Thanks to a boatload of prime-time advertising, most of the sports world is now familiar with daily fantasy sports companies like DraftKings and FanDuel. What’s still unknown — or at least up for debate — is whether or not these sites, which allow people to win real money playing fantasy contests online, offer a form of gambling or a game of skill.
New York Fashion Week kicked off on Thursday, September 13. Just in case you weren’t able to catch up on all the trendsetting moments of the week-long fashion extravaganza, here’s a quick recap of what’s gone down so far.
Friday started off strong with a dramatic Givenchy presentation, which was the perfect juxtaposition for Saturday and Sunday’s bright and colorful shows from Alexander Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, and Monique Lhuillier.
The fit was impressively good for MTM. Little things were off like the balance of front to back, but MTM is never going to be able to correct this. It deserved comparison with both Burgos and Satriano on fit, even though both had direct contact with me and at least two goes at getting it right. That speaks well of Segun, rather than the Italian manufacturer he uses.
In 2000, Posen received a big break after a dress he made for Naomi Campbell changed hands several times among several fashion insiders, including actress Paz de la Huerta.
Apple HQ have announced the launch of an iPad with a pencil, and an iPhone that takes “emergency selfies” – but let’s cut to the chase, because the new Apple Watch Hermes, which goes on sale 5 October, is clearly the most interesting news from Cupertino. In the story of fashion-tech partnerships, that of Apple with Hermes, home of the Birkin bag, is the most glamorous couple to date.
French fashion house Chanel is imagining the multifaceted life of a woman wearing its shoes in a new social film series.
“The Slingback Stories” is a set of four short videos that show how a pair of two-tone pumps play a role in different moments of the same woman’s life. This campaign makes the classic shoe relevant to younger consumers by painting a portrait of the new generation of slingback owners.
German designer Philipp went all out with an edgy aesthetic for his Spring/Summer 16 collection, sticking to a strict colour palette made up of red, black, white and metallics.
One girl strutted the glass runway in a black leather skirt with stitching detail running up it, paired with a matching long-sleeved top. The fringe detail hanging from the shoulders only enhanced the ’70s punk tribute, as did her strappy platforms.
Italian fashion label Dolce & Gabbana took social media content one step further during its show at Milan Fashion Week, curating an intimate look at the catwalk from a model’s perspective.
The 140-foot-long yacht Adastra was born from its owner’s simple desire to be able to explore the far reaches of the globe with his family on a yacht that was fast, seaworthy, comfortable, stunningly beautiful, self-sufficient, and most of all green.
The Franck Muller Giga Tourbillon is, almost, everything a watch enthusiast could want.
It was designed and manufactured in Switzerland – the de facto home of luxury timepieces – and, as its name suggests, it is a tourbillon (French for whirlwind) which is a piece of machinery to defy the laws of physics.
The Echo is a sleek, black cylinder 9.25 inches tall and 3.37 inches in diameter with band of lights around the top that illuminate when you use the trigger word “Alexa.” Yep, Amazon’s Siri is called Alexa and, so far in my testing, Alexa knocks the virtual pants off Siri when it comes to speech recognition accuracy and usefulness.
The question “why not issue bespoke MasterCard’s made out of solid gold” had to be answered one day, and someone did answer it. On the link [above], I interview a serial entrepreneur who created a new meaning for a Gold Debit Card, two meanings in fact, 14 carat and 18 carat.
Not surprisingly, the house of Louis Vuitton has remained at the forefront of such efforts for more than a century – its humble beginnings as a trunk maker to the travelling gentry have exploded into a multifaceted “maison”, which boasts myriad categories from handbags and small leathergoods to ready-to-wear clothing and high jewellery, all signed with the ubiquitous “LV” monogram.
Bentley describes the Bentayga as “the fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive SUV in the world” and with a mighty all-new 12-cylinder W12 engine under its huge bonnet that first claim is certainly true. With 600bhp and 900NM of torque, the Bentayga will get from 0-60mph in 4.0 seconds and go on to 187mph.
Some executives and celebrities live the most lavish of lives. They’ve got their mansions, jets, and sprinter vans. Yes, sprinter vans, but don’t let the plain and simple exterior fool you. The interior of these vans are far from plain and simple, featuring entertainment centers, gyms, and restrooms. It all dates back to 1996 when founder Howard Becker began developing certain SUVs and van models into highly productive, dignified, discreet luxury transports, adding armored protection into its offerings soon enough. Becker Automotive Design was born.
Italian automaker Ferrari has decided to shutter its only Nevada-based dealership, housed within the Wynn Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

German automaker Porsche is generating early buzz for its first electric vehicle, despite the model not having a launch date.
The microsite allows users to watch the design unfold through a series of virtual slides, examine the vehicle from different vantage points and learn about the design, performance and features just by scrolling. The vehicle, the Mission-E, was announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show and does not yet have a launch date, but teasing it with an elaborate and well-designed microsite will create strong initial buzz.
This month I want to talk about how hard it is to do what we do. I never really thought about this until we got into the fall season ahead of us. It was very interesting on planning a major royal family coming to the United States for the first time and having every media outlet cover it for us and not uncovering one single flaw on anything we put together. So I realize how hard it is to not only do what we do, but with the people that we choose to work with.
I have to give it to the US Open once again, this was an exciting year. It’s unfortunate that Serena didn’t make it to the end. Raleigh and Genevieve are truly the best in making VIP’s comfortable with the US Open hospitality. For the first time in the past ten years we used a new car service for the Executive Sprinter Vans for all of the dignitaries traveling to the US Open. We used Brilliant, who’s company was absolutely brilliant in everything they put together. The professionalism was truly on top.
I want to say thank you to Christie’s and Caitlin Donovan for getting us those perfect Hermes bags. She didn’t get just one, but four and Christie’s handbag department is truly amazing. Who would have thought an auction house would be doing this.
During the fall we send out lots of gifts because we have clients traveling into New York everyday. Our gifts when it comes to liquor and making people feel good is always under the Moet Hennessy brand. Thank you for my special bottle of the Dom Perignon P2 at our cocktail party which was held at STK Rooftop. An amazing place just to have fun with friends, drink and relax.
It was very cool to find out that South Beach does actually exist in New York. We sent clients to Limani restaurant and it was truly amazing. The all white décor made me think, “where’s the beach?” The restaurant was a recommendation from the concierge at the Trump Hotel. Good Job!
This month was also interesting as I got a chance to shop for apartments for a client based on the “Wow Factor!” We looked at the 215 Chrystie Street penthouse which is Ian Schrager’s jewel in New York and it is truly amazing. What better place to live when you can have hotel and room service at your fingertips.
It is now Jet time. We are now looking into purchasing and fractional ownership for private jets with our partner, Air Partner. Clients are looking to travel all over and we truly believe that private jet travel is the only way to go. Speaking of traveling, the schedule is really tight right now with us being in LA for the launch of MLevel on the west coast with Remy Martin. We will then go to one of our favorite places, Miami, and will be staying at Ian Schrager’s property The Edition. Next stop will be London where we will start planning for the new year and the launch of MLevel with our London partners.
Something really cool for me. I know women have the opportunity to have Hermes bags, but guys can have something just as cool. This would be, Buscemi sneakers. They are the true relative of the Hermes bag and have that look. I love my new off-white Buscemi sneakers purchased at the exclusive sneaker emporium, Kith, in New York.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I am now using the new iPhone and no more Blackberry. It is actually very fun because I can now take pictures. You see things do actually change.
I want to know when I am getting delivery on my new Bentley SUV, anyone please speak to John and let him know I need the ultimate car right away.
As you can see we have had a lot of fun this month but it has actually been very hard with what we have had to do. See you in November!
The humble hamburger has upped its game, appearing on menus at even fancy restaurants with surprising toppings from fried eggs to foie gras. “There is a whole world of great burgers and everybody is really trying to push the envelope, proving they make the best,” says Joseph “JJ” Johnson, a James Beard-nominated chef with two restaurants in New York’s Harlem neighborhood, The Cecil and Minton’s. Also a judge and co-host of The Next Great Burger on Esquire TV, he shares some favorites perfect for a Labor Day feast with Larry Bleiberg with USA TODAY.
Since the dawn of time, humans have been drawn skyward. Over the course of thousands of years, we finally figured out how to construct buildings that stack dozens of stories on top of one another, and we fill them with opulent furnishings fit for kings. So what do we do when we get to the top? Have a drink, of course. These are the world’s 25 most amazing rooftop bars and restaurants.
My hosts informed me that we were being treated to dinner at the “world’s most expensive restaurant,” and I thought, “really?” But it only took a quick search to confirm that Sublimotion by Paco Roncero — the one-of-a-kind theatrical dining experience located inside the Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza — costs nearly $3000 per person. My excitement and my expectations immediately skyrocketed.
You will not be surprised to see me write that New York City has some expensive restaurants. Tasting Menus at fine dining establishments with strong French influence like Per Se and Eleven Madison Park can easily set a customer back $500 or more, with alcohol, per person.
The NFL may be America’s most popular sport, but that doesn’t mean that every team in the league has an easy time filling stadiums week in, week out. Like college football, NFL franchises have faced increasing difficulty convincing fans that watching the game at the stadium—with crowds, traffic, lines for bathrooms and food, possibly cold and miserable weather, minimal replays, spotty wi-fi, and steep prices at every turn—is a superior experience compared with the comfort, convenience, and price-effectiveness of catching the game on one’s own couch and big-screen TV.
The B2B platform aims to serve as a one-stop shop with more than 500,000 hotels, 150 airlines, and 1,000 tour operators.
Commenting on the launch, Elaf Travel & Tourism Company Ltd VP Travel Tours and Hajj Umrah Mohammed M.S Binmahfouz said: “The B2B platform has varied functions and features which would enable individuals to track, modify and update their travel plans.
Delta’s new “secret” service—under the banner of the airline’s VIP Select program—is targeted at stars, heads of state, and rushed CEOs who simply don’t have the time or inclination to amble down to carousel C. Passengers who opt for the service, which costs $350 on top of a full-fare first-class ticket, will be met on the tarmac by a driver in a brand-new Porsche Panamera sedan or Cayenne SUV who will whisk them and their luggage out of the airport via a private exit (their checked bags will be specially tagged at check-in and are taken off the plane first by the ground crew and loaded into the car).
United Arab Emirates airline Etihad Airways is touring Europe to showcase its cabin options and inflight service elements.
The Etihad Airways Mobile exhibit will visit nine key markets in Europe so that consumers and commercial partners there will have a better understanding of what the airline is capable of offering during a flight.
After testing out the technology on ball boys at the 2014 United States Open, Ralph Lauren is selling a PoloTech™ smart shirt for men that is embedded with sensors to track vital signs like breathing and heart rates, stress levels and calories burned. The shirt streams that information to an app that will generate customized workout programs.
Freightliner has been given a license to test out its autonomously driving tractor-trailer truck in the state of Nevada. The big-rig manufacturer already has such a truck in operation and will now begin test driving it on public highways there.
There will always be a licensed truck driver in the driver’s seat but the Frieightliner Inspiration is designed and equipped to drive itself on limited access interstates.
Recent months have seen a proliferation of 360-degree videos, but how much does the technology actually do for consumers?
The videos, which allow the viewer to click-and-drag the mouse to see all-around the “camera,” are especially popular in the automotive industry but have also seen use among other brands, including luxury conglomerate LVMH and U.S. apparel label Michael Kors.
E-commerce sites for major retailers are being torpedoed by iPhone ad-blockers, with content missing – in some cases, the entire site does not show up – broken links and non-functioning shopping carts, casting a pall over mobile commerce sales just as the holiday season is heating up.
